A revised resolution objecting to the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline has been submitted to York County Commissioners.

The board is expected to discuss the resolution and vote on it at Tuesday's meeting. On July 9 the board tabled the issue after discussing an earlier submission from a group of residents calling themselves the Good Life Alliance.

The new version says: "The York County Board of Commissioners, on behalf of its citizens, realizes the risks of tar sand and crude oil pipelines to our resources in York County and oppose any pipelines of this nature."

The earlier version included a sentence that committed the board to using its powers to protect the county residents' health and the county's natural resources.
